CEs, or continuing education, means the variety of forms of learning, experiences, including, but not limited to lectures, conferences, academic studies and independent/home study programs undertaken by certified addiction professionals for recertification.
The primary purpose of continuing education is to enhance the quality of substance abuse counseling delivered to the public. This is accomplished by restricting advanced continuing education courses to subjects which relate to alcohol and drug abuse counseling and treatment. Certified alcohol and/or drug counselors are required to obtain 50 hours of continuing education toward renewal of certification.
Continuing Education is offered by Behavioral Health Association of Providers and is approved by the below credentialing bodies:
- Alcohol & Drug Abuse Certification Board of Georgia: Provider Number - 20-09-18-0000.
- CCAPP (California Consortium of Addiction Programs and Professionals): Provider Number - 2N-18-292-0522.
- NAADAC (National Association for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors): Provider Number - 176068 (Tier A).
CEs will only be available free to those who attend the live webinars, unless otherwise stated. Attendance will be monitored. In order to complete the CE requirements, attendees must complete the test that will be provided. Check out our CEs for sale here.
